Three Categories of Dimensioning
Dimensioning can be divided into three categories: •general dimensioning, •geometric dimensioning, and •surface texture.
The following provides information necessary to begin to understand geometric dimensioning and tolerancing (GD&T)

Geometric Tolerancing Applied To An Angle Block .

– This allows a drawing to contain a more defined feature more accurately. without increasing tolerances. .Geometric Dimensioning & Tolerancing (GD&T)  GD&T is a means of dimensioning & tolerancing a drawing which considers the function of the part and how this part functions with related parts.

– Sometimes called feature based dimensioning & tolerancing or true position dimensioning & tolerancing  GD&T practices are specified in ANSI Y14. . – ISO 9000 requires not only that something be required.5M-1994. how round does a round feature have to be?  GD&T is a system that uses standard symbols to indicate tolerances that are based on the feature‟s geometry. For example.GD&T cont‟d  GD&T has increased in practice in last 15 years because of ISO 9000. but how it is to be controlled.

97 to 27. – As the table height is dimensioned.For Example  Given Table Height Assume all 4 legs will be cut to length at the same time. . now the height is restricted to 26. or smoothness.03 meaning good tables would be rejected.  However. the following table would pass inspection. – However. For example. or  If top must be flatter. the surface of a 2 x 4 is much wavier (rough) than the surface of a piece of glass. you could tighten the tolerance to ± 1/32. all surfaces have a degree of waviness.

by using GD&T.Example cont‟d.06 .  You can have both.06 . – The table top must be flat within 1/16.06 26 27 28 . (±1/32) . – The table height may any height between 26 and 28 inches.

– Provides “bonus” tolerance Ensures design. and tolerance requirements as they relate to the actual function Ensures interchangeability of mating parts at the assembly Provides uniformity It is a universal understanding of the symbols instead of words .WHY IS GD&T IMPORTANT      Saves money – For example. dimension. if large number of parts are being made – GD&T can reduce or eliminate inspection of some features.

WHEN TO USE GD&T      When part features are critical to a function or interchangeability When functional gaging is desirable When datum references are desirable to insure consistency between design When standard interpretation or tolerance is not already implied When it allows a better choice of machining processes to be made for production of a part .

Datums cont‟d.
Features are identified with respect to a datum.  Always start with the letter A  Do not use letters I, O, or Q  May use double letters AA, BB, etc.  This information is located in the feature control frame.

Datums on a drawing of a part are represented using the symbol shown below.

Datum Reference Symbols

The datum feature symbol identifies a surface or feature of size as a datum.

Location Tolerances – Position – Concentricity – Symmetry .

For other features.Position Tolerance       A position tolerance is the total permissible variation in the location of a feature about its exact true position. For cylindrical features. . the position tolerance zone is typically a cylinder within which the axis of the feature must lie. Datums are required. The exact position of the feature is located with basic dimensions. the center plane of the feature must fit in the space between two parallel planes. The position tolerance is typically associated with the size tolerance of the feature.

Bonus Tolerance  Here is the beauty of the system! The specified tolerance was: This means that the tolerance is .010 if the hole size is the MMC size. or . . we get a bonus tolerance equal to the difference between the MMC size and the actual size. If the hole is bigger.497.
